Thanks for the replies!

Actually I do have the following entries in /etc/resolv.conf on the Neo:

nameserver [being the wireless router]
nameserver [being the IP from my ISP]
nameserver [second IP from ISP]

/etc/resolv.conf on my laptop

Behind the wireless router is a second router/firewall

Still can ping any IP in the Internet but no nameresolution working from the 

I am fideling around with the /etc/resolv.conf(s) but still can't get it 

Thanks for hints!


PS: also tried to install dnrd  as local DNS-Server as described in the wiki, 
which does not really work. The script terminates with "./script_open_moko: 
line 97: -a: command not found", so perhaps a not fully correct dnrd 
installation is the cause of trouble?
